About Message Vests
Message vests are short dog vests ideal for shorter messages to be seen close up. They can be worn with most types of harness as the webbing strap finishes at the back of the dogs front legs. We have created a selection of phrases which many customers have found useful. Or your can choose to customise the wording to suit your dogs needs with a personalised message in our customised message vest listing.
Made to order in 6 bright colours and 5 different sizes, these message vests are an easy way to communicate a message to other dog walkers.
Message vests can be worn with most types of harness.
They are adjustable, light enough for summer, and can be worn alone or on top of a warmer coat in colder weather.
Sometimes your dog just needs a bit of good grace from others. Perhaps your dog is shy, anxious or needs space. Or they are in post operative recovery and you do not want anyone to touch or come near your dog. Maybe they have food intolerance or allergies and you do not want any other dog walker to feed your dog. Or maybe your dog is in training and you don't want other people to distract while they are learning from you. Whatever your reactive dog needs, there is a message or customised wording to suit.
Message vests should not replace your dog training programme however they can be useful if your dog has specific issues or during a time in their life where they need a little good grace. As with all dog apparel, please supervise while wearing.
Message vests have a fully elastic neck which just slips over the dogs head making it easy to put on and it stretches easily for comfort when your dog sits or lies down. The webbing strap then attaches with a clip at the side. This webbing strap fits around the dogs body just behind their front legs and is fully adjustable.
